LaTonya has been one of the few, maybe only, coaches in my life in the past 5 years that's really focused me, which is nice to experience again b/c I do have a lot of experience always having a coach around me. This is a different type of coaching but the one I need now.
I decided to work with LaTonya so I could navigate a career transition. I wasn't exactly sure where I wanted to focus. After only a few sessions, LaTonya's guidance was particularly useful and I was able to identify the two primary workplace motivators that drive my day-to-day performance. This has allowed me to focus on project opportunities that align with these drivers, ultimately giving me greater motivation, confidence and a heightened ability to succeed. LaTonya's unique experience adds value to the coaching process, and her exceptional communication style creates a meaningful, interactive experience. Thank you!
"LaTonya presented compelling, intelligent and useful recommendations to our organization, which was tailored towards our needs and carefully crafted. Right away during our first meeting there was a great connection. LaTonya was fun, open, interested and dedicated to what she does."
"I had the pleasure to receive coaching with LaTonya Wilkins and couldn't be more pleased that I did so. After having been a stay at home parent for the past several years, I have been eager to get back to work, but felt unprepared for the task of starting my job search. LaTonya is an exceptional listener and even picked up on some cues in what I was saying that showed my excitement (or lack there of) of certain positions I would speak about. After only two sessions on the phone and online, I was able to get my resume back up in shape which in turn led to immediate interviews. She is an astsute people reader and an exceptional career coach."
In addition to running workshops and speaking at conferences and events, LaTonya also has a #tipstuesday Instagram series. Each micro-learning episode features an entrepreneur, thought leader or career expert that will provide you with quick tips that you can apply to your business and life. LaTonya has included a sampling here and, if you are not on Instagram, you can find the others on her YouTube channel.
